It is your responsibility to stay on top of your application process. You will be able to monitor your application status under your mySAIT account. If you change your preferred program, you can cancel your application through mySAIT any time before your spot is confirmed. 

Based on the transcripts and documents we receive, your application will be evaluated and assigned a decision. Decisions aren't final and your application will be re-evaluated as it progresses through the admission process. When you submit updated documentation or progress through the competitive entry selection process, your application decision will be updated.


You can choose up to two programs per application. Please make note of the following before choosing your programs.

  • Both programs you choose must be the same application type and in the same term.
  • The first program you choose will be considered your first preference.
  • Choose your second preference in the same application by selecting Next Program.
  • We will only evaluate your first preference - your second, third or later preferences for the term will not be evaluated unless an earlier application is waitlisted or declined.
  • If the same program is chosen more than once – on the same or different applications – we will only evaluate this if it is identified as your first preference. Subsequent applications for the same program will be deleted.
  • If you accept an offered seat all other applications will be cancelled.
  • We will not cancel your first choice if it is waitlisted. Review Apply to learn more about application preferences.

 

After your application is evaluated, your decision will be updated to one of the statuses below:

 


Missing documents

Missing documents means we have not received the transcripts/documentation required for a decision to be assigned to your application. Review your application checklist to see the admission requirements needed for the program.


Pending evaluation

The meaning of pending evaluation may differ depending on the term you applied for, the program and whether you’re an international or domestic applicant.

Domestic applicants and International applicants for Winter 2023 

This status is applied to applications for programs not identified as your first preference.

International applicants for Spring 2023 

This status means we have received and are assessing documents confirming your international education. We will assign this to application for the following programs.

  • The two-year Business Administration diploma.
  • The two-year Hospitality and Tourism Management diploma
  • Any program from the School for Advanced Digital Technology

Please Provide sufficient evidence verifying you are currently enrolled or plan to complete a course required for admission. We will use this information for admission until we receive the results of your transcript/document evaluation.

 

Review Apply to learn if you're considered an international or domestic applicant.


Waitlist

Qualified waitlist means you are qualified for admission to the program but have been placed on a waitlist. You will be offered admission to the program if a seat becomes available.

  • Seats can be offered until the program start date — be prepared by having your funding and living arrangements in place.
  • If your application decision is waitlist/documents required you need to submit your final transcripts before the transcript deadline.

Secondary waitlist means your application, transcripts, or documents were received after the program selection deadline and you have been placed on a secondary waitlist.

  • Review the program's admission and selection dates and consider applying for the next intake.

Applicants on a waitlist can apply for another program or have their current application moved to a future intake within the same academic year. Contact the Office of the Registrar and include your SAIT ID number.


Declined — missing requirements

Declined — missing requirements means you have not met the minimum admission requirements for the program. If you submit additional transcripts and/or documents within the program's application period, your application will be re-evaluated.
